Del 10/71, sadly w/o July 17, 1996, killing 230. This is the aircraft that crashed as TWA 800, photographed about one month before the accident during lineup on runway 15L of Hellenikon airport, Athens, Greece. Many years after the accident, the cause was determined to be an explosion in the center fuel tank, even though numerous experts and eyewitnesses disagree with the NTSB report. The re-assembled wreckage remains in the NTSB training centre.
